Lucky 63 bets on football are unsurprisingly popular amongst punters, especially with matches taking place daily across the globe. Below, we’ve provided you with an example of a football Lucky 63 bet.

How To Work Out A Lucky 63 Bet
Working out a Lucky 63 bet can be a tricky process, especially with all the different combinations included. We’d strongly recommend using a Lucky 63 Bet Calculator, as this saves you the trouble of working out the potential returns whilst the betting selections are taking place.
However, if you’d prefer to work out this type of bet manually, then follow our useful guide below.
- Convert the odds of each selection from fractions into decimals by dividing the top number by the bottom number, and then adding one to that number.
- Multiply each possible combination together, and you’ll then have the potential returns of each bet.
Lucky 63 or a Heinz?
The only difference between a Lucky 63 bet and a Heinz bet is that a Heinz bet doesn’t cover single bets of each betting selection, which is something that a Lucky 63 bet does. They both include six betting selections in total, but as mentioned, the only difference is that a Heinz bet doesn’t cover a single bet for each selection. This means that there are 57 bets in a Heinz bet, as opposed to 63 in a Lucky 63 bet.
Can You Have A Each Way Lucky 63 Bet?
You can have an each way Lucky 63 bet. With any multiples bet which is each way, the number of bets covered within it is double that of the standard bet. Therefore, in an each way Lucky 63 bet, there are 126 bets in total, as you’re covering the ‘place’ part of the bet, as well as the ‘win’ section.
The majority of leading betting sites offer ⅕ of the win odds for the ‘place’ part of an each way bet. However, this does depend on how many runners are involved in the horse racing each way Lucky 63.
If one of your selections is to place, but not win, then you’d have a winning selection on the ‘place’ part of your bets, but a losing selection on the ‘win’ section.
